-Hi, I had the same problem with one that got a coffee spill (sugary stuff does more damage potentially than water because of acidity, I think). The last 3 pins in the approx. 30pin LVDS connector are the ones that power the backlight specifically. the cable might still be fine but the connector will need to be replaced. Have you any luck with it or have you just returned to the ext. monitor?

+And by your photo it looks like the water caused short damage at those same 3 pins as mine - the last 3 running to the backlight.
